The Interpreting Community can be a difficult place. Insecurities, egos, bad experiences, and fears can turn a career into a pile of scar tissue. The Interpreting Community needs a new perspective, a new vision, and this workshop can begin to make that happen. Watch as 13 Hearing interpreters/interpreting students explain what they have experienced in the field of Interpreting, both the good, and the bad. Listen to Deaf consumers tell their stories about how interpreters have negatively affected the environment with their ego and competition. Find out from why all this drama exists, then learn how we can make changes and influence this field for the better. This workshop is raw, emotional, and honest. If you have been wounded in the field, it will be cathartic. If you have been one of the "wounders", it will be convicting. No matter what, whether you are an interpreting student or a 35 year veteran, this workshop will contain truths to which you will relate. This workshop seeks to re-frame the interpreting community...
GLOSSING FAUX PAS'
Interpreters get into a groove, but they often don't realize the common mistakes made in their expressive interpreting. WHEN vs. WHEN, WHY vs. REASON, clumping vs. dropping, deleted pronouns, etc. Advanced interpreters make these mistakes often just as much as the newbies. Like to talk "glossing"? This is the workshop for you!
IT'S NOT ALL ABOUT THE DEAF
Platform / Performance / General Interpreting
.35 PS CEUs... AVAILABLE NOW!
Interpreters work diligently to gloss their interpretations in such a way that the words presented are grammatically accurate. What interpreters often forget is that their Hearing consumers matter too! It matters how we approach them, how we interact with them, how we present our consumers to them, and it matters how we represent them in our interpretations. Those concepts are so often overlooked and our focus often lies in a translation, but our time on sight all matters, and sign choice and sentence structure are only two pieces of a very large puzzle. This workshop wants to perfect your soft skills and your performance skills. It covers the gambit of topics from our first hello, to our presentation and when it comes to presentation this online workshop takes an unexpected turn. Our Hearing consumers work diligently on their speeches, speech patterns, pauses, points of emphasis, comic relief, the strength or softness of their voice, their style, their audience engagement etc. This workshop will start with logistics, but will wrap up with a significant amount of hands up time practicing the platform interpreting scenarios from wedding speeches, to funerals, to concerts, to comedy. If you want to hone your skills in consumer interaction, or consumer representation, this is the workshop for you!
